Why Humidify... For Greenhouses and Vertical Farming

Maintaining consistent humidity levels in greenhouses and vertical farms provides a comfortable environment in which plants can thrive. Enhancing ventilation, maintaining humidification, and ensuring proper cooling can aid in seedling development and healthy plant growth.

The most common issue regarding greenhouses and vertical farms is the combination of low humidity and high temperatures. When humidity drops below 30% RH, serious issues can occur, including stunted plant growth and slowed photosynthesis. Just like with low humidity, high humidity levels can also affect plants. Oedama, edge burn, soft growth, mineral deficiencies are among many of the issues that can occur due to high humidity. However, high levels of humidity most commonly encourage the development of disease outbreak which can be very dangerous and harmful.

Irrigation is crucial for plant hydration and health, however it is an insufficient solution for overheating and can be potentially dangerous to your plants. Watering plants directly and abundantly to make up for the high temperatures and low humidity levels may result in 

the growth and spread of mold spores. Greenhouse humidity control is vital to preventing the spread of disease. It is important to keep in mind the movement of the air, and ensure you have proper ventilation of the air to prevent the buildup of plant pathogens, such as fungi and bacteria, which manifest in still air conditions.
